Day 1110 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hi gang, I'm back! I took a few weeks off to recover from my gallbladder operation, but am feeling great (well the wounds have other ideas, but I, myself, am fine). I wanted to post this OOTD from a few months ago, the one I mentioned in a previous post, that I struggled to blog about. I don't know why I avoided posting it. Despite the current wardrobe struggles, I loved the outfit and felt nice in it at the time, so maybe I thought the photos didn't quite reflect that, I don't know. I am struggling a bit to decide what to wear, while nothing fits me and I don't really want to buy anything new until my weight sticks. So I probably have roughly 30% of my wardrobe left and even then, a lot of it is ill-fitting. This outfit was for my Mum's 60th birthday in March. I felt really guilty because while the gallstone issue was ongoing we were avoiding going out for a big family meal and I suggested everyone went without me, but then they would've felt guilty leaving me at home and I couldn't exactly sit there and eat nothing. It was also my parents Ruby wedding anniversary a few days later and we were having family round for a little daytime party, plus my wee cousin was getting married the next week (same family), so it would've been a bit much to organise another party and with my M.E. as well, I had too much going on as it was. Instead we went out for a wee treat one afternoon on my sister's day off.

Day 1109 - Shoesday Tuesday

Following on from my extra Shoesday post last Friday, I have the second and final pair of shoes I got from the Irregular Choice Disney Mickey & Friends collection. I was quite reserved in my footwear purchases, especially given the size of this range, but that was mostly because I was after 3 handbags (and a purse) too, so had to choose wisely. Sherbet Ice Cream were floral and brightly coloured character heels, so I went in the opposite direction for my second choice, perhaps more 'traditional' when thinking of Mickey colours and with one of my favourite heels.

Day 1108 - Shoesday Tuesday (Extra)

"What's this?" I hear you ask, Shoesday Tuesday on a Friday? Well seeing as this collection has just gone live and I know how tricky it can be when you don't know which size to buy online, I thought you'd want the fit information on these as soon as possible.

Day 1107 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Irregular Choice Sparkling Slipper (Cinderella) 

I wasn't going to blog today after what happened in Manchester, it just didn't feel right to be discussing shoes after something so terrible. I watched it unfold last night and this morning I just woke up feeling so sad. Everyone seems to have an opinion (I'm sure we've all witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly on social media and TV today) but the truth is, there's no comforting words at this time. For those involved or hurt or the families of the dead and injured, that'll be the worst day of their lives and theories on how to "not let them win" just won't matter at this time. I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but I feel a bit guilty actually that I have the luxury of being able to choose to carry on.  Although it's never left my mind all day, I can try and write this blog post and get on with my day.  I can choose not to listen or read any more about it when it becomes too much. There's no escape for those families though and I just feel terribly sorry about that. The only thing I think the rest of us can take away from situations like this is, there always seems to be more people willing to help than harm and we have to have faith in that, no matter our beliefs or thoughts on these situations and that's all I'll say x 
                                                        ------------------------------------
So it's been a little while since I've managed a post here. Last week I did a strange thing and almost completed a post, then chickened out of posting it because I wasn't happy with the photos. It's really not like me to do that, I've always shown you every outfit regardless of it being good or bad, but that's what happened. Anyway, I love this outfit, but it has a story (quite a long one, I'll warn you). So my youngest cousin was getting married last month. We'd known for a while and the cousins were invited at night and because it was held locally, I was able to go. It was still a big outing and effort considering all that's been going on, but I was looking forward to getting dressed up for once. It turned out none of my other cousins could make it (other than the sisters of the groom) as they all either live far away and/or have kids, so it was just my sisters, my brother in law and our Aunties and Uncles. I had a beautiful dress that I planned to wear from pretty much the moment he got engaged! Then I lost lots of weight over the past year and a bit and when it came to trying it on, it was massive. I could literally fit another person inside, it was huge everywhere and drowned me (and not salvageable at all). So, I was kind of torn with what to do.

Day 1106 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! Been a few weeks since I've been able to post, but here's an outfit I wore last week for a hospital appointment. It was my "big" appointment at Ninewells, which I'll go into more detail on Pink Haired Princess when I have the chance, but it meant an early start to get to Dundee on time. Not a fan of the early start! Getting dressed these days is like a major mission, finding what still fits and is weather appropriate.

Day 1105 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! I'm sorry I've not been very steady with blogging over the past 2 months. I seem to have bursts of trying to get on and do things and then I'm either too tired and sore to do anything else or completely unmotivated. Last Tuesday I totally did plan to publish a Shoesday post, but my gallstones had other ideas! It takes so much out of me after an attack, that I need days to recover. Anyway, this week, I had to show you the brand new shoes and scrap whatever I chose for last week. It does mean pyjamas, but you're accustomed to that by now I think (and they're cute so who cares?).

Day 1103 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! A brand new pair of shoes for you, that just came into my possession a couple of weeks ago. That's not to say I've just noticed them, they've been firmly on my wishlist since the moment I saw them on the AW16 runway. I spent all last season telling myself it would never be (way outta my price range). Then I saw them on sale, they sold out of my size a couple of times, then by sheer luck, they got one pair back in, a size up. I wasn't sure whether or not to risk it or perhaps I'd even need the size up and that was a sign from the shoe gods!

Day 1102 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Irregular Choice Alice Lost Your Muchness 

Hello! I have a full outfit for you today, from last month, when I got to wear these Alice boots out for the first time. It was an absolutely freezing day, more wintry feeling than we've had all winter! Mum had wanted to take me out to a charity soup lunch, that I used to go to with her when I was a bit more able-bodied. It's been a few years since I've managed it, but we took the wheelchair and planned it around me buying the Rosanna heels from Irregular Choice at 12! Terrible when your life revolves around shoe buying, but I didn't want to miss them!

Day 1101 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Rosie Cheeks, Rosanna Gault for Irregular Choice

Last week I wore my new Rosie With Love boots and today I have Rosie Cheeks to show you. I reviewed them in more detail here, but I'll talk more about the fit today. Before they arrived I expected a similar fit to my original Rosy cuffed courts, but they are completely different. Rosy were quite snug on me, especially across the top at the widest part of my foot. If you look at the shoe, the bit where you insert your foot, basically looked like a hole cut out of the uppers, whereas the top edge of the new shoe is much more shapely this time. It appears to be lower cut at the front and definitely higher at the sides towards the back end of the shoe. Aesthetically it looks much prettier both on and off the foot, but it is causing some issues.

Day 1100 - Shoesday Tuesday

Busy day today, so I'm just going to jump straight into it. Apologies first-off for the clashing pyjamas, but I've really overdone it the past couple of days trying to get all these photos taken, so I was unable to get back upstairs and get dressed.  The light was also fading (later delivery than I hoped), but I really wanted to get these photos up today.

Day 1099 - Shoesday Tuesday

wearing irregular choice santa's ninth shoes
Shoes: Irregular Choice Santa's Ninth 

I've been dying to show you this full outfit as it's definitely become one of my favourite's of all that I've ever worn on the blog.  It all started last year with the beautiful 'Alpine' print at Lindy Bop.  It was love at first sight, but given that it was pre-Christmas, money was tight and I couldn't buy it right away and it sold out.  I'd really wanted the Gilda design with button front and collar.  They did have the one that came with the jacket left in my size, so as I'd had my heart set on wearing this print last Christmas, I bought that.  It was beautiful in the flesh, but not a great fit on me.  The dress was too tight on the bust (to the point I couldn't breathe and half my boobs were hanging out), but a bigger size would've been too big at the waist and the jacket was actually a little large (and very boxy) on me and because they came as a set, you couldn't do anything about that.  The dress itself looked stunning (though indecent because of the fit) but see when you put the jacket with it, WOW! It was like super, super, amazing.  However because of the fit issues and fact I just don't suit jackets, I returned it.  I even bought the skirt (was desperate for something) in the same print later and it drowned me (so I returned that too), but Gilda never came back.  Until this year (well last year)!  I snapped it up right away to save for this (last!) Christmas.  When I'd wanted to wear it in 2015, I'd just bought the Rudolph furry shoes and thought they'd be perfect together, but I had to wait and see what 2016 would bring and along came Santa's Ninth.

Hello, how is this week treating you so far? I've been super productive, so long may it continue! Well it actually did, until right now. I have a sold out item in my set (because I made the sets last weekend) and I haven't replaced it. I will provide a couple of alternatives that are available to buy, but I'm battling the tiredness after exerting myself showering today, so there you go! This is my high-street outfit and you can find my plus size one here and high end here.

Day 1098 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Customised tinsel court shoes 

Hello, today I have my new year outfit that I intended to show you a couple of weeks ago, but the flu put paid to that!  Our Christmas had been pretty quiet; my sister and her family alternate their Christmas (with the in-laws) and they weren't at us this year.  Mum wasn't feeling well, my other sister had a cold and so we just had a day in our jammies, which was rather nice.  Boxing Day was a lot busier, but I'll show you that outfit next week.  After loving getting dressed up then, I decided I'd do it on New Year's Day as well, even although it was just the four of us having our meal.  Then on the actual day I was pretty tired so wasn't going to bother, but I pushed myself to do it, as I had nothing better to do quite frankly (!) and I'd really wanted to wear these shoes I'd made.  You can read my tutorial post here if you missed it, but I didn't have an outfit planned to wear with them at all.

Hello, hope you are all well? I've just gotten over the flu, which floored me this past week or so. I thought I was avoiding it, but everyone seems to have a cold or sick bug just now, so I knew sooner or later, it was inevitable! I took a full week off, which was rather nice to just rest completely (I wasn't able for anything else to be honest), away from social media and everything else and then the past few days, I've been busy with bloggy things, though I haven't published anything in a while. I'm trying to prep in advance! I do have a fantastic trio of outfits lined up for you over the next few days, centred around these shoes.
